Reviews for Tomato N Cheese Pasta
"Really tasty, made as stated, would make again"
"This is a favorite side dish with a grilled meat at our table. Do not overcook the pasta!"
"This makes a great meatless main dish, too, and is easily doubled. I bake it in individual gratin dishes and serve it with garlic bread and a green salad."
